SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.
DescriptionThe Samba project reports :
All current released versions of Samba are vulnerable to a denial of service on an authenticated or guest connection. A malformed packet can cause the smbd server to loop the CPU performing memory allocations and preventing any further service.
A connection to a file share, or a local account is needed to exploit this problem, either authenticated or unauthenticated if guest connections are allowed.
